Sadly we live in times were people get singled one for expressing a viewpoint. This lady made a private remark and walked into a storm, there is no need for it. Take for example the case of preacher Abu Qatada. He has been awarded £2,500 cash compensation by European judges who ruled that his detention without trial breached his human rights.
But 24 hours later he won a separate case in the European Court of Human Rights that his detention under anti-terror laws introduced by the Government after the 2001 attacks on America violated the Human Rights Convention.
Ten others detainees under the rules - none named by the court - also received similar modest cash awards. The human rights judges said the amounts were "substantially lower" than awards granted in previous cases of "unlawful detention".
